If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Amsterdam, Holland—All you need in Amsterdam is a bike or a boat travel over the small streets or cruise the canals. My favorite spot for lunch is Buffet van Odette on the Prinsengracht 598, and shopping in the 9 Straatjes at Acne, Filippa K and All Saints. Every night there is a great dj performing somewhere in the city, so you can always have a good time and have a great dance!
If you were given a indie cable show, which song would you choose as your opening theme song?
Stand By Me by BB King
Favorite moment in modeling:
I loved a lot of shootings that I have done. Especially the ones that requires me to travel. My most memorable shoot was a trip for a Dutch brand to Cape Town. I will never forget standing at this amazing Tabel Mountain and feeling so blessed being able to see such incredible things while doing my job!
Your wish for the remainder of 2013?
That my friends and family stay healthy and happy! Besides that, I still hope to travel as much as possible! There's still a lot for me to explore!
